I'm trying something new with blog comments.
Apparently you have no choice with Blogger on the word verification "option". If you use a pop up window for comments you must have word verification. This "feature" is built in and it doesn't matter what your settings are, it cannot be taken off.
I hate word verification. I also hate that some of my regular readers are having their comments sent to the spam box. Black, I'm sorry man. I didn't know you were getting the shaft. I'd never intentionally block your comments. I normally don't block people who argue or disagree with me. I certainly wouldn't block you.
Less than 2% of my readers choose to comment. The word verification was becoming such a pain in the butt that even the 2% almost never comment anymore. There is one comment method that Blogger allows (at least for now) me to not use word verification on. I've decided to give that a go and see how it works out.
Please let me know what you think. If for some reason you are still seeing word verification come up, please take the time to let me know.
